So teh ol lady wants to get a new TV. Mine is getting old. I felt like I spent way too much on it but maybe that's just because TV;s have really come down in price.

What kind of TVs do you guys have?

I want around a 60" but I'm not too smert when it comes to what to look for with a TV. I have surround sound that I use frequently, if that matters.

Thinking LG or Samsung. Thoughts?

I just bought a Samsung 60" Smart TV for my new house.  It was on sale for $1150.  I really like it.

I have an LG 55" smart TV.  Really good, even connects to Netflix and Hulu.  Great picture.

I have a Samsung and am very happy with it.


Cnet does great reviews of TV's I would go with one of their top ranked ones:

Don't buy Panasonic.  We had one that shit the bed that had hardly been used.

We have Vizio and Samsung and they seem to work fine.

My newish Samsung looks like live video it's awesome.  http://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-65-class-64-1-2-diag--led-1080p-smart-3d-hdtv-silver/4376023.p?id=1219098067089&skuId=4376023

I always chuckle when they put those little tags on the TV about how much it's going to cost to run it per year.

I have a 55" Samsung 3D Smart TV, works great. We didn't want the 3D, but they didn't have the model in stock we wanted, so  we told the saleslady at Bestbuy (I had gift cards I got from buying a whole bunch of crap for the office :uhh) oh well, we were gooing to be back, some time in the future, she gave us the 3D model for the same price as the standard one.

We have only used the 3D feature like twice since we got it :lol

I don't know why you guys hate the 3D.  I think it's pretty cool.

I don't hate it, I just find it gimmicky. I haven't seen anything good enough yet in 3D, where the 3D is just there, rather than being a magicians trick sort of thing.

3D is probably last on the list of extras I care about. I could see it if I had kids or something, they would enjoy that.

Though the 3D dildo scene from Jackass II was pretty lols.

Is there really a difference other than the 5"? ( that's what she said :rimshot :uhh)

What other things should I be looking for? 1080p? The more HDMI inputs the better. What about the refresh rate?
